🎥 2019 KTM Ultimate Race Highlights

3 years ago | Words: KTM Australia

After six days of racing in the Moroccan sands as part of the Merzouga Rally against eleven other KTM Ultimate Race qualifiers on equally prepared KTM 790 Adventure R’s, it was the 50-year-old from the USA who tasted victory. U.S. competitor Scott Myers has defeated the desert in order to become the winner of the first-ever KTM Ultimate Race.

Entry to the race was available to any rider who took part in one of the six KTM Adventure Rallies held during 2018 and at the start of this year. The special qualification events – one of which that was held at our very own Transmoto 12-Hour @ Batemans Bay – tested the riders to show if they had the excellent machine control, navigational skill and competent mechanical ability required in order to line up on a rally-prepared KTM 790 Adventure R for a special class held within the Merzouga Rally. Only the top two riders from each event would be chosen and, further proving this was the opportunity of a lifetime for these KTM Adventure riders, they were supported like KTM Factory riders at the race.

Featuring more than 1000km in the trails of Morocco, the 2019 KTM ULTIMATE RACE allowed the participants to discover the meaning of ADVENTURE in true rally conditions. Check out the highlights from this epic challenge…
